[Fwd: World Plone Day - Nov 7th, midday at 3months]
Please find below an announcement re. World Plone Day in Wellington and
how you can assist if you're keen. There is also an Auckland event
happening and the details are here.
On top of the required assistance mentioned in the forwarded email below
we also need some sponsorship assistance in both Auckland and Wellington
and potentially Christchurch so if you are able to help out with any of
the following, please let me know:
* cash contributions
* printing t-shirts
* printing informational/marketing stuff
* maybe other stuff - just ask!
What we can offer in return is your company detail on the event page on
plone.org, good mention on the day, and possibly your company logo on
the giveaway swag.
I also really need to hear from you if you're a Plone development
company or even a Plone themer in NZ so I can add you to the directory
of Plone consultancies in NZ that we will be handing out on the day!

> This is a "heads up" to keep your diary free from 12 to 2 pm on Friday
> 7th October for World Plone Day in Wellington. We're calling for
> attendees and (brief :-) presentations or at least registration of
> topics of interest.
> World Plone Day is an international event to "promote and educate the
> worldwide public about of the benefits of using Plone in education,
> government, ngos, and in business." - http://plone.org/events/wpd >

> http://plone.org/events/wpd/2008/wlg >
> Details a still being worked out, but we expect to cover the following topics:
> * Would you like to know more about who is using Plone locally, who
> supports Plone locally, what they're using it for, what can be done
> with Plone and what's on the horizon?
> * If you're considering a web content management system (CMS), why
> should it be Plone? If you're using another CMS, what are you missing
> out on? And even, if you're already using Plone, why should you stick
> with it?
> Oh and ... lunch, plus various give-aways, will be provided thanks to
> our generous sponsors! :-)
> We would love for Plone users - in government, NGO, business and
> education - to present, so please consider taking 5-15 minutes to tell
> the story of your Plone site. If you are interested to present or
> attend please RSVP with numbers, and any special dietary requirements,
> to [hidden email].
